Members of the ESG include representatives from the 10 bi-state partner agencies with direct delivery or operational role in the integrated, multimodal transportation system around the Interstate Bridge, as well as a community representative from each state. The two community representatives will also serve as co-chairs of the Community Advisory Group. For current information, including upcoming meetings and materials, please visit the Executive Steering Group page.

Advisory Groups

In addition to the Executive Steering Group, two advisory groups will provide input and feedback to help shape program work. Additional information, including upcoming meetings, materials, and members can be found on the Equity Advisory Group and Community Advisory Group pages.

The Equity Advisory Group will help ensure that the IBR program remains centered on equity. The group will include members with equity expertise and/or lived experience and will make recommendations to the program regarding processes, policies and decisions that have the potential to affect historically underrepresented and underserved communities. 

The Community Advisory Group will develop recommendations on key issues to ensure that program outcomes reflect community needs, values and priorities. Members include appointed organizations that represent specific stakeholder interests and at-large community members selected through a public application process to identify members who reflect diverse representation and a broad range of interests, backgrounds and perspectives.
